Notes / Commercial Description:
We are pleased to announce the first in the Cooper's Series of beers, which are aged in New White American Oak Barrels. These barrels impart a nice, wine- like flavor and aroma into our IIPA; complimenting the floral/fruity character of the hops used in it's recipe. You would be extremely hard pressed to find a beer like this anywhere in the country! Look for woody/coconut and fresh melon/passion fruit notes in this absolutely unique beer.

Beautiful clear copper brown color with a nice bit of lacing and a thin skim coating of a cream colored head. Smells of vanilla beans and clean crisp fresh cut oak with a nice undertone of alcohol. Starts off tasting a nice spicy note similar to a Belgium then mellows down to a smooth backbone of carmel malt and a light bitter finish. This beer is really clean and refreshing. Great choice if you're ever in Grand Rapids Michigan.
